Yeah, I usually field the spares in B-squad games, hoping that they might make it into the A-squad.

BTW, if anyone wants a Keeper, the Dundee Mifflins have far too many! :P


I will give you 5 G for the lot!

That's quite an offer there! I can't wait to expand my stadium by 0 seats and not buy myself that dragon I've been looking at!

You should be grateful, if it was anyone else I would offer 3G. But for you special price 5G.

SpeedyReedy wrote:Now that I've been here a while, I realise that my introductory post was more about my teams and less about myself. I am a student at UBC, majoring in History. I was born in Canada and have lived in British Columbia since 2008. I live with my girlfriend who I have been seeing for 2 years and we basically spend all of our free time playing video games and watching movies. Recently we completed LEGO LotR and loved it. Today we started Borderlands 2 (Woo, PlayStation Plus!) having completed everything from Borderlands GOTY except for Crawmerax.

I actually don't consider myself a die-hard Harry Potter fan, but really like the site and have been playing football (soccer) management games since 1998 (USM 98/99, various Championship Manager titles, Football Manager from 2005 to 2014, and then manager mode on FIFA/PES from time to time. I also really like Fantasy Football and play the World Cup one every four years - which I think we should all do!) When playing this game, I forget that it is even related to Harry Potter - which I think is good because it shows that the site is better than just a fanclub of the books. Anyway, that is all for now. Peace out, internet strangers!

Updated my original post to include an actual introduction. Greetings, all!

Made a few changes to the spreadsheet too (not shown: spreadsheet pages for raw data, international teams, scouting, training, sponsors, trade history, regen rating, rivals, and a graph of my teams' league positions over time)

Old: http://i.imgur.com/Eistuz4.png
(Positional Rating rates players in all positions, with their Best one noted. Squad Status considers age, skill, etc., and influences my own Valuation, which is based on the In-Game Tradelist values.)

I'd never made a spreadsheet before playing this game. I'd used Excel at school to do basic things like graphs, but nothing with commands like SUM, IF, VLOOKUP, LARGE, or AVERAGE.

In addition I was once an active forum member and moderator, which I enjoyed and am glad to have been given the chance to do. I learned much about Excel in my time on this site and enjoyed spending time with people from all across the globe, sharing in our love for video games and/or fantasy literature. I am sorry to be leaving but this game is one of my most played of all time, so there may come a day that I return and set a new team on their path to victory. However, for the teams I currently own, there will be no further management. At the end of this season, my remaining three teams will be scattered to the wind and while I hope that some of the players I raised from teenagers will perhaps spread into other squads for at least a little while, I may never know if this comes to pass.

I hope you all have an excellent Christmas period, a great New Year, and that this game continues to entertain others as much as it entertained me.

And as my favourite Hogwarts Jedi, Bilbo Baggins, once said,
"I regret to announce this is the end. I'm going now. I bid you all a very fond farewell. Good-bye."

An end of an era...

Thanks for your time and effort, man! You've been a good and (obviously) active force within this game.

I also thank you for all the help you gave me personally - from simple advice to trade agreements and loans, you've helped shape the London Dynamo to what they are today.

It is sad to see you and your teams go, but, as they say: Leave the memories alone!

Best of luck in your future (real-life) endeavors.

Thanks and goodbye, Speedy!
